Djiru National Park contains one of the largest remaining areas of coastal lowland rainforest in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. It includes a rare patch of licuala fan palm forest and is one of the few places you're likely to see an unusual and endangered bird - the southern cassowary. Have a barbecue at Lacey Creek and learn about cassowaries at the information shelter. Nearby, signs in the cassowary arboretum identify the trees that cassowaries feed on. A short circuit walk leads you through the forest and past a viewing platform overlooking the creek. Picnic at Licuala day-use area and follow the children's cassowary walk. A slightly longer circuit leads you under the bright green, patterned canopy of fan palms.
Children are welcome.
There is access for guests with a disability. The toilets at Lacey Creek day-use area and part of the 1.3 kilometre Fan Palm walk at Licuala day-use area are wheelchair accessible.
